New Horizons Haflingers offers exceptional world-class purebred registered Haflinger sport horses for sale that are tall, modern and athletic. Horses owned and bred by us are shown in major breed shows and open USDF/USEF rated shows throughout the Midwest and East coast, winning on-the-line in dressage sport horse breeding classes and under saddle in dressage, eventing, hunters and jumpers, against Warmbloods and many other breeds! As the 2015 and 2011 USEF Leading Breeder of Haflinger Dressage Sport Horses, and the Reserve 2012 USEF Leading Breeder of Haflinger Dressage Horses, we consistently produce sport horse type Haflingers of the highest quality. We may not be one of the biggest farms, but our record reflects that we are one of the best! Our focus on quality versus quantity ensures that horses get the utmost attention and care. Our small, select group of mares were chosen from the best Austrian, German and Dutch bloodlines available, and we keep some of their exceptional offspring as future breeding and performance prospects.
New Horizons Haflingers have the temperament, rideability and personality that adult amateurs and young riders appreciate, and the talent, athleticism, and correct, pure gaits that professionals desire. Our philosophy is based on the belief that horses need to be extremely trainable, rideable, and willing to work, in addition to having eye appeal, excellent conformation, and correct movement. Our broodmares stand 14.2 1/2H-15.1H and are by GOLD, SILVER, ELITE, SUPREME, STAR, and/or NATIONAL CHAMPION stallions. All of our mares that have been inspected are SILVER and GOLD classified and proven performers, all presented to RPSI have been approved for breeding and achieved Mare Book I status, with two awarded PREMIUM status, and several have won NATIONAL CHAMPION titles through AHR, AWS, RPSI and USDF national shows, inspections, and year-end awards programs. Breeding age horses out of our program have been approved for breeding and Silver and GOLD classified with AHR, as well as entered in Main Mare Book I with RPSI, with one achieving Premium status.
Our SILVER classified Austrian imported stallion, Stellar TVR, stands 14.3H and has a pedigree full of GOLD-rated horses, ELITE bloodlines, and World and European Champions. With his excellent conformation, powerful movement, and wonderful temperament, Stellar has made his mark in the Haflinger and sporthorse world! In 2013 Stellar made history as the first Haflinger to attend the North American Stallion Testing. With an overall outstanding score of 7.98, he was awarded his lifetime breeding approval and license (Stud Book I) for both Weser Ems and RPSI. Stellar is also the first Haflinger stallion to be approved for breeding through the American Warmblood Society, and has received two out of five stars in their Five Star Recognition Program (/*/ /*/ / /). In 2011 Stellar was named USDF National Champion Haflinger, with the highest median score in both open and IBC classes of all Haflingers in the country. He has also won Grand Champion and Reserve Champion at USDF rated shows in both IBC and open classes in Zone 1. Stellar was the highest scoring stallion on the 2011 AHR U.S. inspection tour, with a score of 77. Every one of Stellar's foals inspected by RPSI thus far has been awarded premium status (3 Gold Premiums and one Silver Premium that just missed Gold), and his first mare presented to RPSI was approved for breeding into Main Mare Book I in 2015!
Most of our horses are also registered with RPSI in addition to AHR, and have lifetime registration with the United States Dressage Federation (USDF) and the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF).
